    Pros

    GAC has a more entrepreneurial culture than a Lockheed or Boeing. Task assignments are not as rigidly divided within a department like they are at the bigger aerospace primes. It makes it easy to get experience at things you haven't done before, and build more skills. Young engineers can get good assignments that would have taken you years to get anywhere else, as long as you're willing to jump in and work hard. You usually have to work harder than you would elsewhere, but paid overtime is available more often.

    Cons

    People tend to work five to ten years here and then leave, taking tribal knowledge with them, and what they did while they were here is usually not documented well. As a result, the best way to know why something was done a certain way is to ask whoever worked on it before, and if that person has left the company you have to reinvent the wheel, and then you only find out later the company has already been down that road before and you wasted time and effort. 4/10 schedule and overtime are bad for people with young kids. If you bring your spouse with you to Savannah, she'll often have trouble finding a good job because not as many good employers in this area as a big city.

    Advice to Management

    1. Find ways to make people write down what they do and why, so others coming in after them can know how to do things and avoid repeating mistakes. 2. Don't try to be like the 50 Best Companies to Work For, or at least, be sure not to let the growth of the company ruin the way it's different here. I like it better than elsewhere I've been, and I don't want GAC to be overmanaged and over-bureaucratic like Lockheed or Boeing.

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, great work environment. Received a number of great professional development opportunities. I would recommend anyone to work there, as it was a great place to work and a great environment.

    Cons

    More cohesion, teamwork, and direction would have helped. At times there were too many people trying to do too may things, and at the same time too little willing to get engaged. Intitiatives fell by the way side for this reason
